Meet Geisha in Hakone is your first gateway in discovering this best kept secret in the long, iconic history of Japan, and the first organization to actively preserve geisha culture for future generations while keeping up with the times and adapting towards a modern iconography. It is one of the rare few spaces for you to get up close and personal with the talent, wit, mastery and adaptability of the iconic geisha.
We hold 4 limited sessions with the Hakone Geisha a day.
The performances are inspired by the historical movement of "Yumoto Kenban" - dated to one of the most flourished periods of the geisha world in the Showa era. This includes:
・A 40min show of fun banter, unforgettable performances and interactive games
・Unparalleled access to the secrets of Hakone Geisha, regardless of your age and gender.
・A deep and exclusive local experience that you only can get here in Hakone
We welcome your reservations for each showing. Please select the timing that suits you best.
Special gifts will be set aside for winners of the Ozashiki games. They are simple to play and the Geisha will give you a quick lesson. Not to worry - everyone starts as a beginner and we will keep social distance. Let’s have fun safely!
Meet Geisha is a ”LIVE” event. Your active participation in the games and interaction will make the show a truly unforgettable and memorable experience.
Immerse yourself in the traditional arts of Japanese dance and seasonal songs native to Hakone - such as ‘Hakone Bayashi’ and ‘Hakone Bushi’.
During the stage event, you can use a tip ticket ( "Ohineri" in Japanese) to serve drinks to the geisha. Come liven up your experience with this unexpected twist of a ticket!
Uncover the mysteries of the Geisha - don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to ask them any questions. They will be more than happy to share their own unique stories!
